Went here for a friends birthday and the staff were really friendly and helpful considering we were such a large group! I ordered the falafel burger and sweet potato fries which was amazing! Everyone enjoyed their food and it wasn't too pricey! Would definitely recommend!

We went here simply because we had a giraffe discount voucher. It was worth the full price. We took our kids, and there's a great kid's menu. There were also board games, which kept them happy. The staff were excellent, we were served by two different people. And the food was delicious and reasonably priced. 5/5

Popped in here for a bite to eat before going to the theatre. Never been before and very pleasantly surprised. Excellent tasty burgers and yummy chips. House Spanish white wine was delicious and even better with an early eating offer of half price! Not a quiet restaurant, but nevertheless worth a visit.

The staff couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming! Very nice cocktails and the chicken salad was really good, lots of colour and variety.

We go to Brighton once a year and allow our daughter to pick where she wants to eat. she chose the Giraffe as we had eaten there last year. It has now turned into a Burger and Cocktail bar so I was a little unsure but our daughter insisted this was still where she wanted to eat. Her kids menu... More

I had never visited this place before until a friend of mine decided to celebrate her birthday party in there. First impressions were positive; good reception, good decor and spacious venue, nice table to accommodate 16 of us.. Also, the guy who was serving was quite attentive and kept coming to the table to see if wee needed more drinks... More

Very similar to GBK. I would recommend the Falafel burger and sweet potato fries. The alchoholic sundaes are a must.

Offer of free first drink enticed us into the new branded 'burger and cocktails' (apparently trying to appeal to brighton market more than the giraffe branding would). Friendly staff, food was good. Not amazing but the free drinks meant overall cost v reasonable

We went here yesterday with our two children age 4 and 8. The first thing that hits you is the VERY loud music - cant hear anyone talking, even the waitress had to keep asking us to repeat things, and we weren't the only able to mention it either! The restaurant was nearly empty, but the service was very very... More
